Overview

Photos and Description of the South Tempe vacation house rental

Beautiful Lakefront- 2 Bedroom 2 Bath, single level with large lakeside decks

Our single level, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, 1650 sf waterfront home is in one of the most desirable communities in the area..

Phoenix Sky Harbor Airport is a short 10 minute drive, as are Scottsdale, Mesa, Gilbert, Chandler, Ahwatukee.

Villa is central to ASU, stadiums, golf courses & ball parks.

The Villa is walking distance to many parks, shops, restaurants, grocery stores, bike/walking paths & more. Great hiking trails & mountain bike trails are a ten minute drive from the property. Being close to freeways and mass transit allows for easy access to downtown Tempe(ASU & Mill Ave) & the greater Phoenix/Scottsdale area!

*Bus service is available within a block or two of our house. Light rail is approximately 3 miles & you can either catch a bus to the rail line or drive to one of the park & ride lots & hop on. The light rail goes directly to the ASU campus, stadium, Tempe Town Lake, Mesa(to the east) & Phoenix downtown & a bit further into N. Phoenix. Uber & Lyft service our area.

ASU, Mill Ave. & Tempe Town Lake are an easy bike or bus ride or a quick 5 minute drive by car.

South mountain is a great place to hike or mountain bike. That too is a quick 5 minute drive from here.

Our property is also available to travelers wishing to share the property with the owners. The private guest bedroom with its own private bath would be yours, while you would have access to the rest of the property, boat & clubhouse facilities. Inquiries & rates for the latter can be done through the VRBO communication channel. Simply inquire via this listing, but ask for private room/bath. I will send you a special pricing quote with any additional information you request.

ABOUT THE PROPERTY-

Beautiful lakefront decks (2 levels) allow for great relaxing or entertaining. Enjoy your morning breakfast while listening to the birds or an evening BBQ while you watch the sun go down. For those cooler evenings, the gas fire-pit welcomes you as you relax & watch the sunsets.

Notes:
The community has beautiful parks through out, with access to other part of the lake. Most of the homes in the community are not on the water directly & these park accesses allow them to enjoy the lake. The clubhouse also has a boat that goes out 1 Friday a month or you can rent it by the hour for a private ride around the lake & they will supply the Captain. This allows you to relax & enjoy the surrounding should you feel uncomfortable taking our boat out.
